Ok I just solved a persons problem that is very similar to yours. OK So I'll just paste what I told the other person. You might have tried printing a doc/app out earlier and it might have failed so while you trying to print out this present app/doc the printer still might be focused on that failed or it might be confused. Now to stop this follow these instructions. Go to the start bar click control panel. Then once that window pops up ( control panel ) click printers and other hardware. Then once that window pops up ( printers and other hardware ).  Click Printers and faxes and that page will have all the printers and faxes ever installed to your computer. Now click on the printer thats yours and then a smaller wider window will appear you will that window will have all the doc/app you have ever tried printing out. the status bar will show what is going on with each doc/app. Now you should first stop all the doc/apps and refresh. To do this you should highlight all the doc/app and then go into the document tab ( there are several tabs in this window such as document , printer, view and help) then click cancel and cancel all the doc/apps. last step is to go into the view tab and click refresh and it should work :-). If not contact your printer manufactor.

Based ENTIRELY of the total LACK of make and model information about your fax unit, my guess is that the software DRIVER is corrupted! But of course, that is a total GUESS! Let me show you why that is SO IMPORTANT!

Which way do I put the paper in my Compaq A1500 fax machine when I want to send a fax? Up, Down, print front or back? Thanks.


Is this the correct Model number? I looked it up and it doesn't seems to match the database. It doesn't matter if it's up or down. Experiment with the front or back. Once you get the correct placement - then you're good to go.

Printer


You may have the printer settings set to pause accidentally or set to work offline. Go to printer icon, right click and scroll down to check all your settings, if any of above apply, untick them. Try again. The error message is telling you it cannot communicate with the pc. Have you updated anything on your pc, sometimes new systems settings, particulary windows updates and service packs can cause drivers to become incompatable. If all else fails, you could try getting updated drivers from the Compaq website.

How Can I Reprint a Fax?


Here's a trick that I used on the Canon thermal transfer years ago. First take out the thermal transfer unit and roll up the black transfer sheet to the begining of the lost fax. Then reload the paper. Next get a solid black original equal and make a copy. The result you should get a negative copy of the lost fax. Repeat this step until all the faxes are recovered..
